The employees of a company often represent the biggest chunk of company expenses, but are also a company’s most valuable asset.  This means that a company’s profitability depends mainly on the effectiveness of their manpower and on ensuring that workers are performing at their best and according to the organisation’s goals.

The importance of harnessing the productivity of workers is even more important for small and medium-sized companies since they won’t be able to compete with large companies in terms of financial resources or physical infrastructure. Because of this, small and medium-sized businesses need to find ways to compete with bigger competitors if they are to succeed to their full potential.

Several employee development studies reveal that worker productivity increases when companies are able to align company objectives with employees’ individual goals. Doing this also boosts employee morale and increases retention. Goal alignment will also strengthen management’s leadership and will create organisational agility.

Use goal alignment to convey expectations, explain company and worker’s progress and identify employee strengths and weaknesses. Aligning organisational goals with employees’ expectations and how their role and performance will contribute to the company’s long and short term goals will result in workers and management working together to reach the same objectives, and will improve employee performance.

Managers can create a positive difference in employee performance and productivity through goal alignment only if they know the right approach to doing this. Workers should also be able to identify their personal career goals, as well as their individual strengths and weaknesses.
